Police officer who raped colleague appeals his conviction

From Morning Report, 8:46 am on 13 November 2020

The lawyer representing a police officer jailed for raping his colleague says there has been a grave miscarriage of justice.

Jamie Anthony Foster was found guilty of groping and later raping a female officer after a jury trial in Auckland earlier this year.

He has always maintained his innocence and today took his case to the Court of Appeal in an attempt to overturn his conviction.

Court reporter Anneke Smith was there and filed this story - a warning, some may find aspects of her report distressing.
